PLEASE CLICK FOR THE EXCELLENT HI-FI CHOICE JUNE 2015 REVIEW
Consisting of a comfortable to grip ergonomic handle and a no residue sticky silicone elastomer surface on the roller, simply roll this over your record surface to ensure all the gunk and debris from within the grooves is removed.
On contact with the record surface the silicone elastomer surface deforms to fit deep into the grooves, picking up debris on its sticky surface.
Upon removal of the cleaner from the record surface the silicone elastomer holds the debris and dust, safely away from your stylus, leaving your vinyl perfectly clean.
After use, the rolling cleaner can be cleaned under a tap with water and a little soap, once dry it will be as sticky as new.
Bought this as much more reasonably priced than a nagaoka. Works well taking surface dust away from vinyl

I was sceptical about this, recalled bag the rollers with adhesive tape from the past, however it does what it says. Purchasing quite a few 2nd hand records I have tried all sorts of cleaning withvaried success and still have suffered the clicks and pops from embedded muck in grooves. When it arrived I got out a record I had previously cleaned in a bath system with distilled H2O/Isopropyl and it still has the click. I put the roller to work and popped the record on and it was an immediate improvement with on the odd click left, so it does the job. It's not perfect and if you want perfection washing and vacuum is best, but for ease of use and for records not to bad the roller does it, a good VFM
Purchased this to help clean some of my 40 year old vinyl prior to playing them with my new record deck & cartridge. Seems to do the job fairly well, reducing the pops & ticks from an otherwise good recording. Also tried it on some old LP's that I recently purchased 2nd hand, and again it greatly reduced the unwanted noise. Recommended.
Good product. Excellent service. Fast delivery. Thanks.
Excellent product that seems to be very effective at removing dust and dirt particles. Also easy to take apart and clean by washing with warm water.Only downside is that it produces static electric charge on lp which of course attracts more dust!Other than that, excellent product.
Easy to use, but take care as you end up handling your record more, so more chance of a mishap! Results are great on snap crackle and popping discs as I've found some older discs clean up great with this where the carbon fibre brush fails to do, definitely puts new life into older records, very effective: recommended!
Excellent product and service. No surface noise and my old dust bug is redundant !
This has cleaned up some very dirty records from nealy unlistenable to hi fi standard! It lifts out all the big and fine dirt in the grooves.Just put the record on an old rubber turntable matt and press down firmly with the AS-500 Rolling Record Cleaner. Great results!
There are times when it's not convenient to launch a full record washing session, but you are itching to get that new vinyl aquisition on your turntable, this roller offers a quick halfway house. However it's no substitute for a proper record cleaning system, and the roller requires frequent washing and drying itself, if you are not to transfer muck from one record to another. It is helpful in that it will pick up stuff lodged in the groove that a wet/vacuum process doesn't pick up.
